Carol wrote us recently looking for silk chiffons and brocades to make some new dressy holiday raiment. She mentioned that she’d visited Britex earlier this year, and that James had helped her with a length of icy blue Japanese brocade. She sent us a photo of her blue brocade sheath dress. She said, “The photos really do not do it justice. It is so beautiful on, in part because as one moves, the material subtly changes color and has a satiny glow. I used a simple Vogue sheath pattern which came together perfectly; the longitudinal seams did a great job shaping the dress and matched the weight of the material nicely.” We’re sure that this glamorous dress would be a hit at any cocktail party or gathering.
